Swanley Arrest

A man was arrested on suspicion of murder after walking into a police station following the death of a 23-year-old woman.

Officers were called to a report of a woman with severe injuries in Swanley Village Road, Swanley, Kent, just before 11.30pm yesterday.

The woman was treated by paramedics but died at the scene, which has been cordoned off for forensic examination, Kent Police said.

The 22-year-old man was arrested after he walked into a police station at around 3am this morning.

Police said that he and the woman were known to each other but their relationship has not been disclosed.

No-one else was being sought in connection with the inquiry and formal identification of the victim has not yet taken place.

Detective Inspector Gavin Moss, from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: ``In the early hours of this morning, a man was arrested on suspicion of murder, and at this time we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

"I'm hopeful that anyone with any information can contact us to help us further our investigation.

"A number of road closures are in place in the area whilst a forensic examination takes place, and I would like to thank local residents for their patience and understanding whilst this takes place.''

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Kent Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
